Coming Down to the Wire


We're coming down to the wire on Christmas it seems. It'll be here before you know it. I'm going to try to post at least one more time before then.....we'll see how that goes.

I found the template for these stocking gift card holders over at SCS - you can find it HERE. They are really easy to put together. I actually made nine of them but am only showing the ones I made for my son and daughter in law. You know, when your children get a certain age, it's just really hard to buy a gift you think they'd like so I usually give a gift card instead. ( I also give a small gift and hope they don't rush out the day after Christmas to return it!)

On Amanda's - I used the Snowflake embossing folder on the white. The blue is like a suede type paper that someone had given me. It's so pretty so I don't use it very often (gotta save it as long as I can!)

On David's - The base is Bravo Burgandy and the patterned paper is some I had in my stash and have no idea where it came from.

Thanks for stopping by..................
